A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:32 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for July 24, 2003 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, July 24, 2003 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Merlyn disembarks at 9:05 PM.
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Bad Bozo disembarks at 9:07 PM.
Merlyn: hey bozo
Bad Bozo: So, how's it in here in the cornstarch?
Merlyn: pretty quiet so far; muffled cornstarch, I guess.
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dave! inside, makes a note of the time (9:08 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Merlyn: Dave enters with a bang
Merlyn: (meaning !)
Dave!: put your cornstartch by the fire and give me that script, I think he's got my rat
Bad Bozo: I can only lurk a little. Gotta go to work @ 5am.
Dave!: a bad BOZO? do not conform!
||||||||| Outside, the 9:10 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Dead Fred coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Merlyn: ya gotta lurk a little, live a little,
Merlyn: a coughing corpse
Dead Fred: ahem
Dave!: fred's not dead, 'e's resting
Dead Fred: Hey
Merlyn: hey, you said you were dead, I'm not one to argue.
Bad Bozo: Unhappy system readout! Handle stolen from "Give Us A Break" LP. I remember fgndly when every fool & his frog had a CB; now it's only renegades from the Martian Space Party. Or is it the National Surrealists?
Dead Fred: mind if I crash the party?
Merlyn: just don't crash the server.
Dead Fred: no a cot will do
||||||||| doctec sneaks in around 9:13 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
doctec: loog a little
Merlyn: hi doc
||||||||| Catherwood ushers C. Simril into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:14 PM, then departs.
doctec: it's cot to be better than the floor
Bad Bozo: Interesting little room you have here; what color do you plan for the walls?

Bad Bozo: Hey, Catherwood, you've been stiffed. For three dines you can be gone a thousand years!
C. Simril: hey dave. how are things in blues magoos land?
doctec: dave: offer to pay them more, then be prepared for a grueling session of talks in an effort to break their strike
C. Simril: or are you a different dave?
doctec: cat: I HAVE been buried in workland
C. Simril: there was some dave from vancouver last week after i left
C. Simril: and stil are?

doctec: but we're in the last phases of the project, so there's a lull while people test out the new events shopping cart app
C. Simril: if you have a friend on whom you think you can rely you are a lucky man
||||||||| 9:18 PM: Dr. Headphones jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past hour!"
Bad Bozo: C.S., only a fool wouldn't believe in luck while only a damn fool would rely on it.

C. Simril: vicne guaraldi was the best musician i ever heard and jarrett an accurate disciple
Bambi :)
Dead Fred: very good pianist
Dexter Fong: Il: Understand, point is they (kids) don't have a lotta preconceptions about what they should play

Dr. Headphones: dex: as long as they don't do rap!
MoonGoon: The kids knew that going in? gorsh, I feel inadequate already?
C. Simril: nothing wrong with rap. nothing wrong with any musical form
llanwydd: Actually I'm happy to hear that kids are getting into good music
Dr. Headphones: cat: nothing wrong with it as long as it's not on my radio....
Dexter Fong: Cat: Comparing Vince to Keith is one thing, but there *IS* something wrong with rap

Bambi: feel sorry for their ear drums though
C. Simril: all of us like what we like. no one else is us
ah,clem: no rap for me
MoonGoon: It is a bit intrusive, eh wot?
Dr. Headphones: cat: thank grid for that!
llanwydd: rap is the bottom of the barrel
C. Simril: i ilved in japan for a long time and their music is so bad it made me want to cut off my ears
C. Simril: no wonder they paid so much for van gough paintings
Dexter Fong: Tap is the top of the barrel
